Destiny Beta Feedback Was "Nearly Universally Positive"
Well, it's a good thing Bungie doesn't have to make any drastic changes, 'cuz the game's launch is only a month away.
Still, this means the beta must've gone quite well. During an Activision Blizzard investors call this week (as cited by GameSpot), Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg confirmed that they were able to "test everything at scale and everything held up well."
He added that feedback was "nearly universally positive" and fully expects Bungie to deliver a fantastic product:
"That said, as you might imagine, we learned a lot by watching players engage with the game and hearing their feedback and Bungie is now making tweaks to optimize the game and they actually did so after the alpha as well, so that's going to be, I think, an ongoing process to make it a better experience and nothing is more important to us or to Bungie than delivering a great experience to our community and the beta certainly helped us do that."
Hirshberg finished by saying that the necessary changes will be "tweaks" and nothing major, which is always good news. Most certainly do agree that the beta test was excellent, so it looks like smooth sailing ahead for Bungie and Activision. Millions are anticipating Destiny's launch on September 9, as evidenced by retailers unable to meet pre-order demand.
